You're The Best! ~ A Time Out Challenge

Good morning, I'm here with a card for the Time Out Challenge using their fabulous inspiration photo:


I used MFT's Fall Florals and stamped the flowers in jewel tones, as that was what I picked up on from the inspiration photo.  Well, the colors and the brick wall.  I started by embossing the white card stock with a brick embossing folder and gently rubbed some grey ink over the center of the bricks randomly.  Then I cut and stamped the flowers.


After I stamped the flowers, I stamped them again using Versamark Ink and swept some pearlized powders over each of the flowers, giving them a shimmery look.  I don't remember the name of the powders, my mind has gone completely blank!  I tried to capture the shine.  You can kind of see how they look in these close up photos.  
ETA:  Loll suggested that I used Perfect Pearls and she was absolutely right!  Thanks LOLL!!  



After I was done taking pictures, I still felt like something was missing so I added some small butterflies cut from colored card stock that I gave some sparkle to, using a clear Wink Of Stella pen.  


I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
